Colorado state Sen. Rachel Zenzinger has been named the 2019 Legislator of the Year by the Economic Development Council of Colorado, a statewide network of eco-devo professionals in both the public and private sector.

The council saluted the Arvada Democrat for her “outstanding work” in supporting economic development excellence. The award is given to a legislator who has “demonstrated leadership by building consensus across the political spectrum to successfully pass bills to strengthen Colorado’s economy, infrastructure and workforce,” according to a statement from the council.

Zenzinger said she believes “it is critical that we analyze and ultimately support policies, regardless of party or politics, that help hardworking Coloradans and create a thriving environment for businesses. That has been my guiding principle since 2016, and I am proud to have not only adhered to it, but to be recognized for it.”
